The association has been working for human rights since 2009. It works among migrant communities, ethnic and religious minorities, and excluded groups. It operates primarily in Wrocław, although it undertakes interventions in other cities. For years, they have been working for an equal and just society, promoting the idea of mutual solidarity.
Their assistance is mainly based on providing free counselling i.a., in the field of registering the stay and work in Poland, international protection and violence motivated by prejudice. The association’s team also works in the field assisting people at offices, schools, hospitals, courts, and police stations. They also support the education of children from the Roma migrant community from Romania, living in Wrocław, and work with people staying at the Guarded Centre for Foreigners in Krosno Odrzańskie.
They admit, the last year was one of the most difficult in the history of their Association due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Nomada was involved in helping from the very first days of a full-scale war, when more people in need were coming to Poland every day. This situation resulted in the necessity to expand the team to include lawyers, consultants, cross-cultural integration assistants and translators. In 2022, they supported over 12,000 people in need.
